Equipment matters. But not for the reason you’d think, we use a variety of computers, lasers, and automated machines to do our job. However, while the technology is new the art is ancient and requires skilled craftsman dedicated to their work.
Design a better mousetrap. Not because the old one doesn’t work. But because it could be better. Working with wood, if we’re honest, can be a bit dull. Our process starts with a question, “How can we make this interesting?”. The answer, is often design and functional changes that make a product both interesting and better to use. Our Spartan Knife Block is a shining example of that philosophy. Our Beer Flights were the first in the world to utilize chalk board to make the design more functional. Our PagePals help thousands of arthritic readers hold open a book. We talk a lot about quality, but quality starts first in the design.
For thousands of years craftsmen have been making functional and beautiful items out of wood. We are proud of that heritage. When we wanted to make our own mark, we wanted to make it fun, too. Our designs are unique, quirky, and inspire conversation.
Let’s be honest here “green” is a great and powerful marketing pitch. Sometimes it’s helpful, other times the words ring hollow. But the best part of working with wood is working with wood sawyers and yards that use sustainable harvesting techniques. They’ve been doing it right long before it was a fad. It’s in their best interest (and ours) to keep these forests alive and healthy. We’re proud to be a part of this ecosystem.
“Quality is everything?” In Good products start with good people. It’s easy to buy a better quality brand. It’s easy to buy a better quality lumber. It’s much harder to find and nurture the right people for the job. Quality starts with the craftsman. When you get that right “quality in everything” becomes easy.
We can’t do what we love to do without the patronage of our customers. The internet can be a cold and desolate wasteland when it comes to buying and selling. We are real people making interesting things for real people. Your enjoyment is the ultimate currency we deal in. If you have questions, comments, or concerns please contact us.
